    Stop: 3 hours
    We will meet you in the heart of Namba (detailed meeting instruction upon booking) and begin by heading on foot to a local 'izakaya' to get to know each other and sample the raucous atmosphere of downtown Osaka by night! At our first location, we will have our first (but not last) 'Kampai' of the evening and try a range of Japanese foods including fresh sushi, grilled yakitori and the local speciality, takoyaki! From here, your guide will steer you to a local backstreet drinking establishment for a post dinner drink where you can expect to meet some of the locals, learn a little survival drinking Japanese and discover what makes this city so famous as the nightlife centre of West Japan! Next, we head north past the iconic 'Glico running man' for photos before more refreshments and to see where the night takes us... often to singing our hearts out at a Karaoke bar!

I have been traveling across Japan for almost two months, so coming to Osaka didn't really excite me. Well, that was until I met Rodney! Rodney's tour takes you to local food joints AND local bars - which makes it such a unique experience even if you are not a drinker. We

Highly recommend this incredible food and culture tour through the back streets of Osaka! The food was incredible and I would never have found these places nor have been able to communicate without the help of Sarah. She was personable and fun!
